The merger of Robinson and Lincoln has brought me to my first year of teaching at Lincoln. In 2019, I taught second grade at Robinson Elementary. In 2020, I took over distance learning in the district and worked with all of the distance learners, K-5 online. In 2021, I taught third grade at Robinson.
This will be my first year teaching Kindergarten buy my seventh year of teaching overall. I am so excited for this new journey. The primary age group, K-2, is by far my favorite! I look forward to getting to know your child and to have the opportunity to watch firsthand their wonderful growth.
I have taught at Robinson Elementary for the last three years. In 2019, I taught second grade. In 2020, I took over distance learning in the district and worked with all of the distance learners K-5 online. This year will be my first year in third grade. I am so excited!
In 2016, I student taught at Ewalt Elementary under the mentorship of Shelly Dunsmoor. After my student teaching was completed, I taught first grade at Saint Mary Catholic School in Newton. I taught in Newton for three years.
I am initially from Kansas City, KS. I was born and raised in Wyandotte County along with my three sisters. My family is very close knit so I try to visit as often as I can.
My husband Tanner and I met at our community college in 2012 and were then married in June of 2017. We had our daughter, Jessica in May of 2018. In 2020, Jessica was diagnosed with a rare type of liver cancer and received treatment at St. Jude in Memphis. She received a liver transplant and is currently living, cancer-free!
Aside from us three humans, we also have one dog who we love very much! His name is Cooper.
Aside from teaching, I have many hobbies! Some of those hobbies are reading, writing, crafting, fishing, spending time with my family, and enjoying the beautiful outdoors.
My favorite meal is grilled steak with a really big and soft loaded baked potato… YUM! For snacking, I enjoy Reeses Peanut Butter Cups as well as any kind of spicy chips. My favorite types of drinks are Diet Dr. Pepper, black coffee, and ice cold water.
I love watching the Kansas City Chiefs as well as the Kansas City Royals. My favorite college teams to watch are the KU Jayhawks and Texas Longhorns.
